This is what I found in the mail today.
YAY IT'S HERE. I've been both looking forward to and dreading this anthology.
Looking forward to it because FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF YES N/CHEREN.
Dreading it because my contribution is bound to look like absolute shit compared to the others.
Yeah, I... kinda drew a 10-page manga for this anthology. I'm still not sure whether that was a good idea or not, but hey, I got a free copy of the doujinshi out of it.
Since I don't have my anthologies post up yet, I'll just slap everything about this book at the bottom of this post.
Btw, yes, my manga does indeed look like shit compared to the others.

Commentary and notable pieces: This anthology was organized by Fukiyu-san, who has been a twitter friend of mine since sometime last year, and Mukuri-san (aka Mizukami), who has been a twitter friend of mine since I missed the submission deadline and single-handedly held up publishing and I wanted to see if she was talking shit about me on twitter. (She was not, Japanese people don't do that unless they're on 2ch.) I don't really know any of the other people who worked on this though. :B
I have yet to read Yuzuriha's fanfic (UGGHHHH WOOOOORDS), but these are my favorites among everything else:
Cherenyan Observation Diary by Ichinose Machi: I'm not much a fan of the catboy archetype, but this is just adorable. N finds a cat-Cheren sleeping in Victory Road so he takes him home, and though Cheren doesn't like N much at first, he eventually warms up to him. Daww. :3
That Thing Called "You Reap What You Sow" by Pohe: Cheren is eating Casteliacone and N wants a taste, because he doesn't want to have to wait in line for it. Cheren refuses; N cleans some ice cream stuck to Cheren's face and then licks it off his finger, which makes Cheren flustered. N asks again for some of his ice cream, and they get in a bit of a scuffle which results in the Casteliacone falling on the ground. N ends up having to wait in line anyway.
Also, Yoshitani Suyoe's illustration is quite pretty. *___*
